I don't know how or what, but I now own a city on dCITY.io
A little screenshot of the very very early stages of the next big time consumer for me on Hive 😅.
The back story
When I was little, I always loved playing SIM City. Through the years, I've bought numerous editions and used to play SIM City on the PC all the time. Next to FM (Football Manager), it probably was my favorite game.
Until cheat codes completely ruined it for me. The problem with the cheat codes of course was that you would set ridiculous goals, which with normal gameplay you'd never be able to achieve. At a certain point, I grew out of it, mainly because my last 2 laptops don't even have a cd drive.
Getting back to it
In the past couple of years, I had reconsidered starting to play SIM City again. I studied Urban Development and Planning, so building cities has always been intriguing to some extend. But also a very entertaining kids game Hoopa City on my daughters tablet 😂.
I must see, it has been a bit of a rocky start so far, I think I invested a little more than I was expecting. But I decided there were certain cards that I just wanted in my collection. So I bought a Brewery for 2200 SIM, since it was the only one for sale at the time.
I also did some very random stuff. Bought several cards that weren't necessary, made calculation mistakes. Found some fun things and voted for @ecoinstant (since everyone voted for him). "Hi President, nice to meet you!"
I think I already kind of went over the amount I had in mind to spend in the first 3 days, so I'm going to take a little bit more of a laid back approach, read a little bit more on Dcity related posts and hopefully have a better idea what my next step should be by next week.
It's pretty solid game. It is simplified, but at the same time complex enough with more than enough layers to keep me busy at least for the next 6 months.
I think I accidentally created a new Hive hobby.
